What You Need to Know Before Your Home Is Listed
Pricing Your Home
Pricing really is part art and part science. A Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) is the starting point which will tell us what properties like yours have recently sold for and from which we compare and contrast your home and then get an idea of what your home’s value is. The art of pricing is knowing the local market, knowing the housing trends on a local level and knowing the current local demand so we can adjust the CMA price point to maximize your profit. Pricing is one area where hyper-local expertise is essential so you can get the greatest price possible without risking over pricing your home and missing out on potential buyers. Over pricing leads to inactivity which often makes potential buyers think there is something wrong with the home even if the price is adjusted latter just because of the number of days it has spent on the market compared to similar properties. The third piece of the pricing equation is your expectations. Once we have all three factors in place we can intelligently discuss a pricing plan that will lead to a successful transaction in the time frame you require.
Preparing Your Home for Sale
Experience is the best teacher when it comes to knowing what makes potential buyers comfortable enough in your home that they want to make it theirs. I will walk through your home with you and give you little inexpensive tips that will make your home much more appealing than the competition which will get us more interest and offers quicker. My hyper-local focus allows me to know exactly what is on the market, how we compare and what local buyers are responding

Negotiating Offers: When an offer is presented from a prospect, it's negotiating time! We will negotiate for the BEST price and terms for you.

When necessary we will counter their offer on any of a number of terms and then work with the buyer’s agent to make the offer a deal.
